Liturgy

Students attend Mass weekly, normally on Friday mornings at 8:30am at our parish church (a block away from the school). Students actively participate at Mass in the pews and as altar servers, lectors, and ushers.  Classes take turns serving as the choir, leading the liturgical music.  Reconciliation services are available for students at least twice during the school year. A living Stations of the Cross is enacted annually by the eighth grade class on Holy Thursday as a commemoration of the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Our Lord.

Prayer/Precept

The following schedule for instruction is used in accordance with the Diocesan curriculum. In addition, students are encouraged to practice personal prayer on a daily basis and continually grow in their relationship with Jesus.
